A man (Buñuel) takes a straight razor to a woman’s eye. Then, a young man (Batcheff) struggles with obsessive desires, hampered by absurd interventions from ants, an androgyne playing with a severed hand, pianos, clergymen, dead donkeys and a doppelganger. The hero walks happily along a beach with his girlfriend but, in Spring, they are sprouting out of the ground.
Buenel and Dali's short masterpiece is a must-see.
